I am the Debt Recovery Manager here at Trethowans, assisting the head of the Department with the day-to-day running.
I specialise in commercial debt recovery and contractual disputes, assisting clients to recover their outstanding debts in the most cost effective way.
I have experience in collecting overdue invoices in a number of different industries, including construction, recruitment and professional services. I also have experience in recovering monies paid to parties in error, for example, by way of overpayment of salary or a transfer to an incorrect bank account.
I graduated with an LLB from Kingston University in 2012 and I was called to the Bar by Middle Temple in November 2017.

Away from the office
I can often be found on the golf course attempting to tame my over-swing, but more recently I enjoy spending my spare time with my young family.
